    I am doing an Alaska trip and am doing the washington backcountry route and thinking of getting the colorado one so we could possibly hit that on the way back. I dont have a GPS though, is it doable without a GPS? (asking about both washington and colorado)

    Yes it is but understand some roads are not labeled in the backcountry so expect to miss some turns. I would bring <a target="_blank" href="http://www.amazon.com/Benchmark-Maps/e/B005WIPIBG/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=butmaptou-20">Benchmark Maps</a><img src="https://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=butmaptou-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /> along with you for each state. They are very well detailed atlases and provide you map info if you do get lost. We use Benchmark for our basemaps as the names and look are the same, just different zoom levels.
    Thanks & Enjoy! Bill

    Avalanche clearing (so it does not slide when someone is on the road. snowpack was off the charts that year) on the Ophir Pass road which is part of the COBDR - http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/COBDR

    Well, that sucked. :lol3

    Ordered two Texas Hill Country maps, entered "flat maps" in the comments and still received the folded maps. :bluduh

    I'll call later today, I suspect all will be resolved.
